    I have a Standard white leghorn roo that is 1 year old about. I currently have a bantam black wyandotte roo that is about 3 weeks old. If I introduce the bantam roo in when he's about 2-3 months old will the standard and bantam roo get along? or will there just be chaos :\\ I really like this little roo, but my leghorn roo comes first.

    my standard leghorn and neighbor's OEGB get along. theyre buddies in fact. it's cute the OEGB looks like a mini leghorn!

    honestly it depends on the birds. they should get along, but if its a completely new roo your adding you might want to keep him in a kennel or cage inside the coop for a day or two. with food & water of course. i think everything will be just fine [​IMG]

    Most likely will be fine, but anything can change. Depends on their personalities........Pop

    I have a bantam Golden Sebright and a standard EE roo. Sadly, they don't get along at all. BUT..... this Sebright is the nastiest, meanest and downright rottenest roo ever! [​IMG]

    I have 2 full size roosters (mixed), in with 2 bantam roosters (Golden sebright, and something else), and have never had a problem. They also grew up with the rooster though, so its a little different..
    It depends on the bird, but give it a try and see how things go!
